Hello! How is your Christmas card making going? Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner? Canadian Thanksgiving seemed like a long time ago and American Thanksgiving is fast approaching. Then it is that time of year that I refer to as "Oh My Word! I need to make more Christmas cards!" :)
To try to reduce the panic Christmas card making rush, I made another card for my stash. This one used the newly released Quietfire Peace stamp. Here is the set:
Peace was stamped in black and heat embossed onto vellum paper. Tim Holtz Distress marker in Peacock Feathers was applied in the gaps as shown. White out was applied behind the stamped letters. (The white out gives a nice rich color to the letters, adds white to the small gaps and also prevents the die cut from being seen through the stamp.) It was die cut using Spellbinders Labels Thirty Three.
Next, ivory paper was die cut using Becca Feeken's beautiful Spellbinders die set Lacey Tiers. Black marker was run along the edges. The dies were glued onto card stock and then mounted on an ivory tent fold card. Black gems were adhered at will. :)
This card will be easy to mail and would also look great in other colors. I think I will make a red one next. (Another card for the stash!)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
